[THREDDS #CGZ-817431]: THREDDS WCS



Hi Mark,

The "experimental" comment is a very old one from early in the development of 
our WCS implementation. We support the WCS capabilities in a similar fashion to 
the other TDS capabilities. That is, we try to fix bugs as quickly as we can 
given our constrained resources and other requirements; we welcome 
contributions from users.

I will mention that WCS is not as heavily used as our other data access 
services (e.g., OPeNDAP, WMS, and NCSS). So it may not have the same level of 
user testing/pounding that our other services may have. The lighter use is 
mainly because the client support isn't as well developed as for the other 
services, at least not in our user community.

Anyway, I have removed the "experimental" comment from our documentation. 

As for WCS 2.0, we do not currently have any plans to implement a WCS 2.0 
implementation. For one thing, the WCS 2.0 specification is written in the new 
OGC core/extension style and there are still a number of extensions that need 
to be written before we could implement. We are tracking developing extensions 
but don't have the resources to push any forward at the moment.

Hope that helps,

Ethan
